    It will never go away... We will always have uneducated, unenlightened and stupid people, unfortunately.

    Read the whole quote and try to think before you respond. The point of the paragraph you quoted was that even if and when racism diminishes, that hate isn't going anywhere and will simply be transformed in other ways. That is what I meant by "overt racism will be replaced with different forms of classism." I'd figure that you MUST have noticed that since it was in the quote that you excerpted from my post. Hanging rich folks in effigy would obviously be one of those forms of classism.

    I emphasized rich people hating on poor people because that is, in my opinion, linked to the prevalence and persistence of racism--which is, by the way, the topic of this thread. If you would bother to read the whole post and think about it, this would be obvious to you.

    I feel like there is something interesting happening here. Be more specific about who you are talking about.

    There may be some confusion as to the difference that Racism will always be wide spread and there will always be racists. My belief is racism will dimininsh in society as a whole not today not tomorrow but eventually...but there will continue to always be racists of all persuasions.

    And, are you implying that only the "coloreds" practice racism ?
    I think that you would be happier , if some honesty were practiced.
    "Whitey's" racism is far more effective (wealth and numbers), and its dishonest to pretend that it exists not.
    This concept of human territorialism - most interesting...
    Then the forced "race mixing" creates racism ?
    This could well be..
    We do need a better people.

    Yes!
    The poor have no right being on "public grounds", this for the property of the wealthy. And they have to right to protest, after all, its the rich who prevent them from starving !
    For this they should be grateful.
    And, of course, its only the poor who hate...

    I never claimed it was only the poor who hate.

    The poster I was replying to claimed it was the rich who are hate the poor, the poor who have done no wrong.

    Im sorry, but ignoring the poor, vs. hanging effigies of the rich.

    I'd say hanging shows more hate than ignoring.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.
